Grameenphone adopts ‘work from home on Thursdays’ plan to cut energy consumption
Leading telecom operator Grameenphone has announced keeping its headquarters GPHouse non-operational on Thursdays when its employees will work from home as part of effort to cut power consumption to help the government fight the ongoing power crisis.
The digital connectivity partner also runs its operation with an AI-based solution to ensure electricity efficiency throughout its operations all over the country, the mobile phone company said in a statement today.
"The world is going through one of the grave energy crises in recent times. This unprecedented long period of high energy prices and the supply shortage is exerting tremendous pressure on all economies, resulting in consequences in our lives," said Syed Tanvir Husain, chief human resources officer of Grameenphone.
"During these trying times, we have proactively adopted contingency ways of work to curb electricity consumption in solidarity with the Bangladesh government's prudent efforts to navigate the challenges."
"Our latest operating model, integration of AI and RPA through modernisation, has enabled our employees to work from home, ensuring smooth operations for our customers," Husain said.
"We also encourage everyone to adopt the habit of cycling, walking, or carpooling to stand by the nation on an individual level which will translate into long-term impact in reducing carbon footprint."
